Romulo Acosta banned following Edinburgh vs Treviso brawl at Murrayfield

Nice one Scrummie, dishing out the punishment like a boss. Bit like watching a prop scoring a try. Did you hear the bloke in the crowd (around 0:28): go on, get in there!!

I quite enjoyed the ref's explanation for showing yellow (not red) to Hart - basically the punches were a bit crap, missed the intended target of the head, therefore no red... Personally I think yellow was easily sufficient - just sticking up for a team-mate who's being punched repeatedly in the back of the head while he's lying on the ground.

What a wanchor that prop is - I would like to see a very long ban for this prick, both for the cowardly punches and for having his arse handed to him by a scrumhalf.

Nick Evans and Brian O'Driscoll give a great phase play pitch demo

I respond to your offence with by quoting Stephen Fry:

But, even if anyone were really offended, I think the fact BOD felt it was an appropriate thing to say on TV is awesome.

"Catching out the fatties at training" is the best comment ever made.

A pretty healthy pension pot there and good luck to him.

Will be interesting to see what effect this has on Jonny Sexton... I could see Carter being a very positive influence, but if Sexton ends up keeping the bench warm for him, clearly not so helpful...

Shamelessly pushing my kids into golf! I employed the high earnings potential versus risk of injury formula.

If it works out as a career - kerching! And I'll think they'll thank me for it - even the ugly golfers seem to be knee-deep in premium clunge.

If not, well there's no better dad-and-kids time than sharing a round of golf. If I'm honest, I think we'd all be happier in the latter scenario. Jesus I'm getting soft, must be the Christmas spirit.

USA 7's player Perry Baker kicks pitch invader after thuggish tackle

For me, the rules are very simple - pitch invaders can be categorised into four groups. Here are those groups and the corresponding actions for dealing with them:

1. Sexy woman, naked - should be actively encouraged by everyone involved in the game. Long, close-up, slow-motion video footage to be captured and posted immediately to youtube / upload request sent to rugbydump.

2. Ugly/fat woman or a bloke, naked - funny. Leave them alone.

(Caveats for groups 1 and 2 - stay away from the players and ref.)

3. Anyone who's not officially involved in the game going onto the pitch with clothes on - Twat. Have the guts to strip off or don't do it. These people should be escorted off the pitch by security, with optional roughing up, then hit with a large fine and some kind of community service.

4. Any pitch invader, (naked or not), interfering with the game itself, making any kind of contact or even looking like they might make contact with any player or official - all bets are off. You have crossed the line and deserve everything that happens to you. The player/official that's been attacked should attract no criticism whatsoever, with no limit on the level of violence in their retaliation.

In this case, I would love to have seen Baker do a Duncan McRae on this prick - he should have left the field a battered and bruised shadow of his former self, with a couple of permanent scars to remind himself of that day he acted like an utter bellend.

Ha! I beg your pardon then.

To be honest I'm more impressed that RD can spell Ysgol Brynhyfred...

Well done and good luck to you all!

OK, I'm going to be "that guy" - disappointing that a teacher doesn't know the difference between your and you're...

Lovely story and a nice try though.
